A Sad Goodbye To A Wonderful Actress

I haven't update in a while, and it's all thanks to that pesky organization called college. However, when I heard the news that Natasha Richardson died yesterday, I was absolutely dismayed, and I had to write a little post in tribute to my favorite movie that she starred in.

The 1998 remake of The Parent Trap was my 10 year old self's ultimate favorite movie of all time. I watched it three times a week and did the secret handshake routine with my friends for every little excuse we could think of. I longed to be both Hallie Parker and Annie James at the same time when I grew up. Not only was I totally riveted by the awesome life of those twins, I was completely charmed by their parents as well. I wanted to hang out with their mom Elizabeth James, played brilliantly by none other than Ms. Natasha Richardson.

Natasha Richardson died because of a traumatic brain injury caused by a skiing accident. Her fans are understandably devastated, her diverse acting range, talents, and kind persona have touched millions. Deep condolences to Liam Neeson, her two sons, and the rest of her family.

It is so awful! Poor Vanessa Redgrave! It must be really hard to have your child die before you. It was a real shock to everyone!
I have never even heard of the Parent Trap...must be a fun movie, if you loved it that much! I always really liked Home Alone...

It was a wonderful movie, and Natasha Richardson brought such a warmth to the film.
